Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth PS5

The breaking news just keeps on coming out of Square Enix: today it's been confirmed Final Fantasy VII Rebirth on PS5 will feature "new comrades" that you can "cooperate with". Wow! This is the fifth development comment the company has issued, and none except the first have been of much β€” if any at all β€” substance. Still, now you know there's going to be new characters to play as during combat.

The question posed to battle director Teruki Endo is as follows: "Has the battle system changed from Final Fantasy VII Remake?" Funnily, his response doesn't even properly answer the question: "In Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, new comrades will join you in battle and you can cooperate with other party members in even closer ways than before."

Now we know Square Enix is "working on nailing down a release date", the PS5 exclusive will have loads of freedom, it has a story and characters, and now there'll even be new characters to play as during combat. Again: wow! Who do you hope these new comrades are? Let us know in the comments below.
